Smoked salmon recipes: 'Perfect substitute' for your starter with carrot and miso paste

Classic smoked salmon starters include a terrine, a mousse, or slices of smoked salmon with bread and a slice of lemon. However, for vegetarian, vegan, and plant-based members of the family, there is an alternative.

For the marinade, Gaz recommends on his website two cups of veggie stock, one tablespoon of miso paste, and three tablespoons of smoked paprika.

This goes in with one big sheet of nori, two tablespoons of maple syrup, two tablespoons of sea salt, and the juice of a lemon.

Vegan cream cheese can be bought from stores, but it can also be made at home.

This is done with cashew nut, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, water, and salt and pepper.
